MECHANICAL ENGINEERING MODELLING - A SUCCESSFUL MSC-DEGREE PROGRAM OF EXCELLENCE
Published: 4 Sep 2014
Abstract: The first master programs in engineering (MSc) based on the Bologna System have started in Hungary in 2009, among them a fully English-taught program called Mechanical Engineering Modelling (MEM) in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) for talented students. In contrast of other engineering programs running parallely, which are focusing on one specialization, this program consists of two (a major and a minor) obligatory disciplines ("modules") giving two solid legs for students' competence. Students can choose these two modules in any combination from Solid Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Thermal Engineering and Design and Technology. Five years have past since the start of the program and we have already enough experience to judge its success. The program became the best one among all in demand, serving as a virtual center of excellence, and also a natural forum of international students participating in regular or exchange programs.
